   Cheap Meat Dreams and Acorns presents Winnipeg Sound Machine. (Winnipeg)
      pictures and audio archive available at this link ---> Cheap Meat Dreams and Acorns

      Winnipeg sound artist Ken Gregory presents  a new work in progress for Art's Birthday 2009. Presented
      as a sound installation/performance, Against the Wind( working title) is result of several years research into Aeolian Kite
      Instruments. Winnipeg Sound Machine is an acoustic electro-mechanical system that poetically reproduces the processes involved
       with operating a wind instrument in the field. Receiving the audio recordings from this outdoor instrument, the electro-magnetic sculpture
       not only becomes a poetic and kinetic representation of a sound speaker, but also mirrors the different components of the system used
       to capture the wind's voice. This will be premiered in April 2009 at  Articule in Montreal in association with Elektra 2009.

   Don't Touch The Art: A Sonorium in B-flat Minor for Ondes Martenot and voice
      Andrew Garton will perform Don't Touch The Art: Sonorium in B-flat minor for Ondes Martenot33, solo voice, makam (Turkish
      melodic formulas similar to Western scales / modes) chord generator and hard curve saturation.

      It is said that a child's first sound is often in the key of B-flat minor. Some say the tone that resonates across and
      through the planet is in B-flat minor. If at art's birth, it's first sound were B-flat, it is fitting that at this
      auspicious year, when the earliest of electric sound machines are present, at the turn of a new phase in human
      industrial history, that a sonnet in B-flat is performed on site at the Kulturfabrik Hainburg, Austria, 17 January.
A r t ' s  B i r t h d a y  .  N e t --- is supported by the Western Front Society.
The site is open to all Art's Birthday participants to post their event information.
